Here's what got fixed, improved, and is still broken in Windows 10 Mobile build 15043

For the first time in two weeks, Microsoft released new Windows 10 builds to the Fast ring, which are 15042 for PCs and 15043 for Mobile. The builds are light on new features, and even more so on phones. The only thing that's new in Windows 10 Mobile build 15043 is an improved reading experience in the Microsoft Edge browser.

As always though, there's a long list of fixes, improvements, and known issues. Here's what got fixed and improved in the Mobile build:

  • We fixed the issue causing the Settings app to crash when navigating to Settings > Devices and you should be able to pair a Bluetooth device without any issue. The Bluetooth quick action from Action Center should also now work again. This issue could have also resulted in decreased Flashlight quick action reliability.

  • Using Continuum to connect to a display wirelessly should also work as expected.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in screen rotation sometimes unexpectedly not working on the last Insider flight.

  • We fixed an issue where live tiles were not updating some apps such as Outlook Mail and Calendar.

  • We fixed an issue where under Settings > Update & security > Phone update Insiders might see the text “Some Settings are managed by your organization” even though the phone wasn’t being managed by an organization.

  • We fixed an issue from recent flights where you couldn’t paste or drag a folder from the PC to your phone

  • We fixed an issue where tapping the link for a website with an associated app would crash Microsoft Edge and not open the associated app.

  • We fixed an issue where downloads from Microsoft Edge directly to an SD card might unexpectedly use space on the local phone storage as well.

  • We fixed an issue where the keyboard might dismiss after a second when opening a new tab in Microsoft Edge and quickly starting to type.

  • We’ve fixed an issue that could result in your personal typing dictionary being unexpectedly deleted and having to train the keyboard from scratch.

  • We fixed an issue where, during the download of a phone update, after disconnecting then reconnecting to Wi-Fi due to low reception you might get an error saying the download needs a better connection to continue, despite currently being connected to a good Wi-Fi connection.

  • We’ve improved the video playback experience when using Continuum for phone wirelessly over Miracast.

Here are the known issues:

  • Speech packs will be unable to download on this build.
  • Adding a new card / paying with an existing card will not work in Microsoft Wallet.
  • The icon for Windows Insider Program under Settings > Update & security is shown as a square.

Most of these known issues are minor. The problem with the speech packs has been present for a few builds now. The easy workaround for this is to make sure that you have your speech packs installed before upgrading to the new build, and don't perform a factory reset once upgraded, as that would uninstall the speech pack.

If you're on the Fast ring, you can grab Windows 10 Mobile build 15043 by heading over to Settings -> Update & security -> Phone update. If not, go to the Windows Insider Program tab and tap "Get started". When your phone reboots, go back and make sure that you're set to the Fast ring.
